As the Jacksonville Jaguars prepare to play the Tennessee Titans in Week 18, we sat down with Jimmy Morris of Music City Miracles to learn more about the opposing side.

Question 1: Are you expecting Mike Vrabel and Will Levis to be Tennessee’s head coach and starting quarterback next season? If not, which spot is more up in the air?

I am, but if I had to pick one that is less likely to be here it would be Mike Vrabel - but it won’t be because he is fired. If he isn’t here, it will be because the Titans traded him to another team. There has been a lot of talk about the Patriots coveting Vrabel. If they move on from Bill Belichick, they could come calling. I got more into all of the rumors on Vrabel here.

It is too early to know what Will Levis ends up being as an NFL quarterback, but he has shown enough that they will try to build around him this offseason and see.

Q2: Will this be Derrick Henry’s last game as a Titan?

That’s an excellent question. I think there is mutual interest in a return. It will come down to what the Titans are willing to pay him and what his market is around the league. He’s not the back he was a couple of years ago, but he can still be an effective runner in the right situation. As a fan, I would love to see him play his entire career here, but it’s going to come down to finding a number that makes both parties happy.

Q3: Who are some young, lesser-known players that Titans fans are excited to watch develop over the next few years?

Tyjae Spears is probably the young player we are the most excited about. He has handled a bigger workload than most people expected this season and has been really fun to watch. If the Titans decide to move on from Henry this offseason, Spears will most likely take over as the lead back, but it will be more of a committee than what we have seen the last few years.

Left guard Peter Skoronski has been up and down this year on a terrible offensive line. The Titans drafted him with hopes of being a long-term starter at the position. Hopefully, he is the only returning starter from this line next year.

Unfortunately, that is about it. The Titans need help all over the field this offseason.

Q4: Which position should Tennessee address first in next year’s draft?

Left tackle without question. While they need help at pretty much every spot, they cannot hope to accomplish anything on offense until they can protect the quarterback.

Q5: The Jaguars are 5-point favorites according to DraftKings Sportsbook. Which side of the spread are you taking, and do any game/player props fancy your interest?

Interestingly enough, the line is now Titans +3.5. I’m not sure why. Maybe they don’t expect Trevor Lawrence to play. Either way, I can’t see any reason to pick the Titans here. They are going to have one eye on the clock counting down to getting out of town while the Jaguars still have everything to play for.

Henry is currently +100 to score. It might be his last game at Nissan Stadium. They will try everything to get him in the end zone at least once.
